Lyrics

I left my eight year-old girl with the sitter
I left my three year-old boy in his dreams
And the bills piled up with the dishes
Piled up with the laundry

I walked out of the house that he left me
I walked past the space where we parked the car
But since he drove away its been empty
Like my broken heart

So cowboy ask me to dance
Sit down keep me company
Tonight I need to be
Anyone else but me

I'd like to wake up one day as Cinderella
In a castle with a prince at my feet
And a new chance at the life that I've lost
A new chance to feel free

But I still go to work every morning
And I go home to work every night
And although I sure love both my children
I don't love my life

So cowboy ask me to dance
Sit down keep me company
Tonight I need to be
Anyone else but me

So cowboy ask me to dance
Let me get lost in a dream
Tonight I need to be
Anyone else but me
Tonight I need to be
Anyone else but me
